South Korean pop star Psy has released his new song, Gentleman as a follow-up to his global hit Gangnam Style.

"I've been working and reworking on it continuously and I think the latest version will be the final one," Psy told a South Korean TV news program earlier this month, "This is another very rousing song... The dance is one known to all Koreans but new to foreigners. This will be presented in Psy style," he said.

According to Billboard, Psy finished shooting the music video for Gentleman on 9 April in various locations around Seoul.

The 35-year-old rapper will also debut the new song live at Seoul's World Cup stadium on 13 April, which will be streamed around the world on Psy's YouTube channel at 6.30pm Korean time (10.30 am BST).

"April 13, 2013 is a new single worldwide, all at the same time. And I'm going to do a concert in Korea ... and you can see it live on YouTube. Just for you," he said in a video posted online.

Gangnam Style Becomes Most-Viewed YouTube Video of all Time

The single that was first posted on YouTube on the 15 July last year, managed to become the most viewed YouTube video in just over four months, with the previous record holder, a video for Justin Bieber's song Baby, taking more than two-and-a-half years to reach a similar total.

The viral video pokes fun at the consumerism of those who live in the affluent Gangnam suburb of South Korea's capital Soeul. The dance, for which the video is best known, sees singer Psy pretending to be trotting on a horse, holding the reins and spinning a lasso.

The dance craze also entered popular culture with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei both attempting to copy Psy's creation.
